07:30 IST: Hello and welcome to the live commentary from the Day 1 of the Asian Games 2018. 

Anish Bhanwala, 15, became India’s youngest Commonwealth Games gold medallist when he won the men’s 25m rapid fire pistol, snatching the honour from 16-year-old Manu Bhaker who had won the women’s 10m air rifle finals on the Gold Coast barely a week before. A third teenager, rifle shooter Elavenil Valarivan, will be another strong contender after landing two junior World Cup gold medals setting a new world record in the process.

The wrestling mat could prove equally high-yielding and Bajrang Punia’s sizzling form makes the 2014 silver medallist India’s best bet for a gold in Jakarta. The freestyle wrestler won the 65kg gold at the Commonwealth Games and was not required to attend trials for the Asiad.

In the women’s section, Gold Coast champion Vinesh Phogat (50kg) will be a strong contender for the gold medal. New training methods introduced by Argentine-born Swedish coach Santiago Nieva have been credited for the Indian success in recent boxing tournaments.

Vikas Krishan, who won the lightweight gold at Guangzhou in 2010 but took silver when he moved to middleweight four years later, is seeking his third successive Asiad medal.

India have won all nine kabaddi gold since its inclusion in 1990 and the trend is unlikely to change, while anything less than gold will be a disappointment for the men’s hockey team who were runners-up in the Champions Trophy. Commonwealth Games javelin champion Neeraj Chopra also gave himself a major morale boost on the Gold Coast in a rare athletics success for the country and the 20-year-old will be the flag-bearer in Jakarta.

India Women’s Hockey Team Aims To Better 2014 Asiad Bronze


The 2018 Asian Games is upon us and a lot is riding on the women’s hockey team to better their bronze medal finish at the 2014 edition in Incheon, South Korea. The team come into this tournament after a quarter-final finish in the recently-concluded Women’s Hockey World Cup. Ireland had beaten India 3-1 via a shoot-off in the quarters breaking the latter’s 44-year-old dream of reaching the last four. This team had a fruitful 2017 with skipper Rani Rampal leading them to the 9th Women’s Asia Cup triumph.

The Asian Games squad was announced last month with forward Rani leading the pack. Ace goalkeeper Savita has been named the vice-captain and she will be joined by Rajani Etimarpu at the goalpost. India’s defence will feature the experienced Deep Grace Ekka, Sunita Lakra, Deepika, Reena Khokhar and drag-flicker Gurjit Kaur while the team’s midfield will include Namita Toppo, Lilima Minz, Monika, Udita, Nikki Pradhan and Neha Goyal.

Other forwards alongside the experienced Rani are Vandana Katariya, Lalremsiami, Navneet Kaur and Navjot Kaur.

Chief Coach Sjoerd Marijne highlighted the need for the right mixture of youth and experience in the squad. “We have a good mixture of experienced and young players. I’m happy to note that each one of them have experienced what it is like to play high level matches,” Marijne said.

This is the best chance for the team to win gold given their successful Asian tournament outings (Asian Champions Trophy – winners in 2016; runners-up in 2018).

Complete Squad:

Goalkeepers: Savita (vice-capt), Rajani Etimarpu

Defenders: Deep Grace Ekka, Sunita Lakra, Deepika, Gurjit Kaur, Reena Khokhar

Midfielders: Namita Toppo, Lilima Minz, Monika, Udita, Nikki Pradhan, Neha Goyal

Forwards: Rani Rampal (capt), Vandana Katariya, Lalremsiami, Navneet Kaur, Navjot Kaur.

Indian Women’s Badminton Team Hopes To Add To CWG Glory


The Indian contingent for badminton at the Asian Games 2018 is one of the finest among the participating countries and will carry medal hopes of the nation after a good show at the Commonwealth Games 2018. To put things in perspective, India’s only singles medal in the event was won by Syed Modi in 1982. The fact clearly reflects the abundance of India’s talent pool in 2018. The squad is a fine mix of experience and youth. National badminton coach Pullela Gopichand’s daughter Gayathri has broken into the senior national side for this mega event.

Olympic silver medallist PV Sindhu and veteran Saina Nehwal will spearhead the women’s squad, while Sikki Reddy and Ashwini Ponnappa will be leading India’s charge in the women’s doubles section.

Sindhu, after finishing fourth in the All England Championships earlier this year, won silver at the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games. She lost the final against Saina, who was almost flawless in the match.

While Sindhu didn’t play much in the team event, Saina was terrific in India’s run to the gold medal at the Commonwealth Games.

Both of them have been in sublime touch and will be looking to add to their medal tally in Indonesia. Being the seniors in the squad, Saina and Sindhu will also be looked up for inspiration from the rookies Ashmita Chaliha, Rutaparna Panda, Aarthi Sara Sunil, Aakarshi Kashyap and Gayathri Gopichand.

Women’s badminton contingent:

Saina Nehwal, PV Sindhu, Sikki Reddy, Ashwini Ponnappa, Sai Rao, Ashmita Chaliha, Rutaparna Panda, Aarthi Sara Sunil, Aakarshi Kashyap, Gayathri Gopichand.

Women’s Challenger Trophy: Mithali Raj’s Half-century in Vain as India Red Register Easy Victory


बेंगलुरू: अनुभवी मिताली राज की 51 गेंद में 51 रन की पारी के बावजूद इंडिया ब्ल्यू को यहां महिला टी-20 चैलेंजर टूर्नामेंट के वर्षा से बाधित पहले मैच में इंडिया रेड के खिलाफ सात रन से हार का सामना करना पड़ा. इंडिया ब्ल्यू ने पहले बल्लेबाजी करते हुए 20 ओवर में आठ विकेट पर 100 रन बनाए. इसके जवाब में रेड टीम ने जब 16.3 ओवर में तीन विकेट पर 79 रन बनाए थे, तब खराब मौसम के कारण खेल रोकना पड़ा. इंडिया रेड को वीजेडी नियम के अनुसार विजेता घोषित किया गया.

पहले बल्लेबाजी करते हुए ब्ल्यू टीम ने नियमित अंतराल पर विकेट गंवाए और मिताली की जुझारू पारी की बदौलत टीम सम्मानजनक स्कोर तक पहुंचने में सफल रही. भारत की एकदिवसीय अंतरराष्ट्रीय कप्तान मिताली ने अपनी पारी में सात चौके और एक छक्का मारा. उनके बाद टीम की दूसरी सर्वोच्च स्कोरर वीआर वनिता रहीं, जिन्होंने 12 रन बनाए.

भारत की अंतरराष्ट्रीय खिलाड़ी दीप्ति शर्मा ने 15 रन देकर दो विकेट चटकाए और फिर पारी का आगाज करते हुए 44 गेंद में छह चौकों की मदद से 45 रन बनाकर रेड टीम की जीत में अहम भूमिका निभाई.

बता दें कि इस टूर्नामेंट में इंडिया-ब्लू, इंडिया-रेड और इंडिया ग्रीन नाम की तीन टीमें खेल रही हैं. यह टूर्नामेंट बेंगलुरू के अलुर में 14 से 21 अगस्त के बीच खेला जा रहा है. भारत को दो बार महिला विश्व कप के फाइनल में पहुंचाने वाली मिताली राज को इंडिया-ब्लू की कप्तान बनाया गया है. हरफनमौला खिलाड़ी दीप्ति शर्मा को इंडिया रेड की कप्तानी मिली है. इंडिया ग्रीन का नेतृत्व वेदा कृष्णामूर्ति कर रही हैं. भारतीय टीम की दो सीनियर खिलाड़ी स्मृति मंधाना और हरमनप्रीत कौर इस समय इंग्लैंड में किया सुपर लीग में हिस्सा ले रही हैं. इस वजह से उन्हें किसी टीम में नहीं चुना गया है. 

टीमें :

इंडिया ब्लू : मिताली राज (कप्तान), वनिथा वीआर, डी. हेमलता, नेहा तंवर, अनुजा पाटिल, सायमा ठाकुर, तानिया भाटिया (विकेटकीपर), राधा यादव, प्रीति बोस, पूनम यादव, कीर्ति जेम्स, मानसी जोशी, सुमन गुलिया. 

इंडिया रेड : दीप्ति शर्मा (कप्तान), पूनम राउत, दिशा कसाट, मोना मेश्राम, हर्लिन देयोल, तनुश्री सरकार, एकता बिष्ट, तनुजा कंवर, शिखा पांडे, शांति कुमारी, रीमालक्ष्मी इक्का, नुजहत परवीन (विकेटकीपर), अदिति शर्मा. 

इंडिया ग्रीन : वेदा कृष्णामूर्ति (कप्तान), जेम्मिहा रोड्रिगेज, प्रिया पूनिया, देविका वैद्या, मोनिका दास, अरुणधति रेड्डी, सुषमा वर्मा (विकेटकीपर), राजेश्वरी गायकवाड़, फातिमा जाफर, सुश्री दिब्यादर्शनी, सुकन्या पारिदा, झूलन गोस्वामी, सजना एस.

Powar has now been handed over full time duties till November 30, 2018,” BCCI said in a statement.

Powar carries the experience of figuring in 2 Tests and 31 One-Day Internationals (ODIs) for India. He has also featured 148 first-class matches and 28 T20s.

The upcoming tour of Sri Lanka will be the first assignment for Powar as head coach.

“His term will include the tour to Sri Lanka in September, a bilateral series in the West Indies in October followed by the ICC Women’s World T20 in the West Indies in November,” the statement further said.

England Women’s Team Star Orders Arjun Tendulkar Not To Slack Off During Groundsman Duties


England women’s cricket star Danielle Wyatt and son of India cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar, Arjun, seem to share a great friendship. The duo have been spotted enjoying each other’s company in England. Arjun Tendulkar, who recently made his debut for the Indian U-19 team in Sri Lanka, is in London training with the Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) youth setup. The young all-rounder has been helping out with the groundsman duties at Lord’s and was even pictured selling radios outside the iconic ground. With rain a constant in the Lord’s Test between India and England, Arjun Tendulkar has been hard at work but that still didn’t stop England women’s team star Danielle Wyatt from urging the Indian youngster to get to work.

Wyatt posted a video on her Instagram story, in which she can be heard urging Arjun to get back to his groundsman duties at Lord’s. 

A Twitter user shared that video on his page.

A few days back, none other than India spinner Harbhajan Singh bumped into Arjun while he was selling radios outside Lord’s. The veteran off-spinner took to Twitter to post a picture with the caption reading: “Look who selling radios @HomeOfCricket today.. sold 50 rush guys only few left junior @sachin_rt #Goodboy”.

While Arjun has been in the spotlight for his off-field doings at Lord’s, he made the news last month for his on-field performances.

He was selected in the India U-19 squad for the Youth Test-series against Sri Lanka and ended up claiming a wicket in his first over of that match.

Meanwhile, for India, Lord’s Test turned out to be a nightmare as hosts England inflicted a crushing an innings and 159-run defeat on the visitors to take a 2-0 lead in the five-match Test series.

Madhya Pradesh Government Orders Regular Inspection Of Women’s Hostels


Similar rules will also be framed for private hostels to ensure safety of inmates.(File)

Bhopal: 

The Madhya Pradesh government today ordered monthly inspection of women’s hostels in the state, after an inmate of a facility for differently-abled women was allegedly raped by its director.

Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan has issued directions to officials in this regard to prevent recurrence of such incidents at women’s hostels and orphanages.

The director of a hostel for speech and hearing impaired women in the Awadhpuri area in Bhopal was arrested on Wednesday night for allegedly raping a 20-year-old deaf and mute tribal inmate.

“I have taken a meeting of the officials concerned and directed them to conduct monthly inspections of such (state) aided and unaided facilities where girls are residing,” Mr Chouhan told reporters at his residence.

“The inspection will be carried out by the collector and superintendent of police in each district on a monthly basis,” he said.

Mr Chouhan said similar rules will also be framed for private hostels to ensure safety of inmates.

“Rules will be framed for private hostels, too, to ensure girls remain safe there. Such incidents are very painful and already the accused person has been arrested,” Mr Chouhan said.

Ellyse Perry Feels That Time Is Right For Women’s IPL


With women’s cricket garnering popularity and audience in recent times, Australian all-rounder Ellyse Perry feels that a full-fledged women’s Indian Premier League (IPL) will be the next big step on the circuit. The 27-year-old asserted that a women’s IPL in the near future will only push the sport to bigger and better things. “A full IPL season is definitely the next step. It would open up huge avenues for the game to continue to grow. Putting that competition in place would take the game to all new heights. As the sport gets more and more professional and girls are able to play on a full-time basis, it’s only going to develop the way that they play the game,” icc-cricket.com quoted Perry as saying.

During the 2018 edition of the IPL, a women’s exhibition match was played between IPL Trailblazers and IPL Supernovas in Mumbai before the Qualifier 1 clash. Perry, Meg Lanning, Alyssa Healy, Megan Schutt and Beth Mooney were among the five Australians who participated in the match.

Asserting that the only match was a big success, Perry opined that BCCI should work on playing a full women’s tournament.

“The first exhibition match we did was really successful and I guess it’s now up to the BCCI to find a way to implement a full tournament,” Perry said.

Perry was instrumental during Sydney Sixers’ second title win, earlier this year in the Women’s Big Bash League. In the 16 innings, Perry managed a total of 552 runs at an average of 46 along with picking up five wickets. Hailing the efforts of Cricket Australia in the field of women’s cricket, Perry asserted that the board was doing absolutely everything in their power to for the progression of women’s cricket and expected the same from the Indian cricket board.
